    Those imitation phones run their own proprietary OS, & iOS can not be installed in non Apple iPhones.

    You can't install the app store or any other iPhone software onto it as it isn't an iPhone. No idea where you'd get instructions, but why not try where you bought it from?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You CANNOT.
    Its a fake chinese knockoff.
    Its not a real iphone even though the outside looks like it.
    You cant do anything with it.
    You cant install the iOS or apps, appstore anything like that.
    Its junk.
